  1. 入れ子になったセキュリティグループでの制御に関する不具合を改修してほしい

    現状”非推奨”とされている、入れ子になったセキュリティグループでの制御を可能にしてください。

    この制御とは、例えば以下を指しています。
     ・入れ子になったセキュリティグループにサイト・リスト/ライブラリへの権限を付与した際の挙動(新規にメンバー追加したセキュリティグループメンバーに権限付与されない場合がある)
     ・[ユーザーまたはグループ]タイプの列の[選択元]に、入れ子になったセキュリティグループをメンバーとしたSharePointグループを指定した際の挙動(SharePointグループメンバー直下に指定したグループしか対象にならない。(そのグループの下位階層グループは対象にならない))

    弊社では「会社」/「部」/「グループ」のセキュリティグループを作成し、それぞれのメンバーに下位組織を表すグループをメンバーとさせることで、会社組織全体の構造を表現しています。
    また、「部」/「グループ」の増減や、それらメンバーのユーザーの増減が発生した場合は、対象の「部」/「グループ」のメンテナンスを行っています。
    その上で、「会社」を表すグループを各種権限設定やリスト・ライブラリ設定等で指定することで、組織変更や人事異動が発生しても都度メンテナンスしないで済むようにしておりました。

    しかし、例えば前述しました制御に関して、御社のサポート窓口に問い合わせる都度、入れ子になったセキュリティグループの利用は「不可能」ではなく「推奨していない」とご案内されるのですが、その理由が以下のようなもののようですので、利用者側からするとそれらは”制限事項”ではなく”立派な不具合”であると思います。

    ・下位階層のグループにメールが送信されないことがある
    ・下位階層のグループに対しアクセス権限が適用されないことがある
    等々

    仮にそれが想定した通りの動作であったとしても、各種設定に、グループではなく対象エントリの”すべて”(ユーザー含む)を設定しなければいけない運用となり、とてもではないですが非現実的であるため、こちらが解消されるか否かは、今後もSharePointを利用するか否かにも匹敵する問題かと思います。
    恐らく、弊社だけが問題視しているわけでなく、他の企業様でも同様に感じているのではないかと感じてることですので、当問題の解決を強く要望いたします。

    • Show the access request email address on the Access Denied screen and/or a custom message

      When users request access they might not get a response back from the site's owner. This is typically the case in large companies where people come and go often. Also site owners aren't on the hook to respond because they know users aren't aware the email was sent to them. The end result is a flood of tickets to the SP admin to provide access.

      Also what would be nice is a option next to the access request email address button where you can leave a custom message at the site level so it shows on the access denied screen.…

        • Display sites created by Teams in SPO admin center

          The SharePoint sites created to support Teams should really be displayed in the SharePoint admin center since they are sites in SharePoint. Indicating they are used by a Team would be good as well to differentiate them from "normal" site collections. It's hard to keep track of the SPO footprint without being able to see the Teams sites.

          • Roll out ALL changes to the Canary tenant before global roll out

            It is very helpful that Microsoft makes a 'Canary Tenant' available to test existing solutions with upcoming changes to the platform. This helps us to catch potential breaking changes early.

            However, it turns out that only new functionality is rolled out to the Canary Tenant, not other changes. For example this caused major problems with our customers when Code Based sand-boxed solutions were discontinued without adequate warning (other than a general announcement a couple of years earlier without a specific date).

            Please roll out ALL non-emergency changes to the Canary Tenant before rolling them out globally.

            • Expand SPO Powershell Capability

              Current PowerShell cmdlets available to administer SharePoint Online don't have enough functionality at or below the Site Collection level.

              I would like to see more of the on-prem cmdlet functionality migrated to SPO to be able to gather configuration data, site hierarchy, site / document library permissions, and other such information to quickly build documentation and reports.

              Having to learn and use CSOM seems like a step backwards.

              • Allow CSP Delegated Admins to Manage Modern Sites

                As a CSP, receiving delegated admin access from a customer does not allow you to access modern site collections (Communication sites, modern Team Sites).

                Delegated admin allows you to access the SharePoint admin centers for both classic and modern sites. In classic, if a site collection has Company Administrator as a site collection admin, a CSP user with delegated admin has rights to the site collection.

                In the new SharePoint Admin Center, Company Administrator cannot be added as a site collection admin for modern sites, nor can anyone add my account as a site collection admin because my account is…

                  • Add the categories feature.

                    On the page after you clicked “Storage Metrics – Lists”, there are names of lists displayed in line.
                    I hope that it can also display the categories of lists just as the same as it displayed in “Site Content”

                    • Please make the menu fixed

                      It would be really helpful if the width of the menu can be fixed even after you changed the Windows size in SharePoint site.
                      At the present time, if you narrow the window, the menu item will be hidden in [...].
                      Please fix the width of the menu in the SharePoint site, slide to the side with the scrollbar, and make the menu option can be selected.

                            In UI we have option to grant permission to child items along with the folder permission using the checkbox "Share everything in this folder, even items with unique permission". However there is no api available for sharing permission for child items via api/ CSOM.

                            It would be better to have this feature.

                              There is a fundamental flaw in the permissions model in modern SharePoint team sites and Microsoft Teams. Site Members have been given Edit rights which allows them to delete or edit apps on the site. That is the role of the Site Owner. The Site Members must be given Contribute rights, (like it was in SharePoint 2010).
